Population health innovation

Companies face skyrocketing healthcare costs, while employees receive fragmented care. Mercer Health AdvantageSM (MHA) tackles both problems. Employers can help workers most at risk better manage their care — and save an average $430 annually per employee1.

Why should population health solutions be part of your benefits strategy?

When employees thrive across all dimensions of well-being, they have lower healthcare costs and are more productive. To achieve the strongest outcomes, population health solutions should address physical well-being and other dimensions, such as emotional and financial well-being, purpose and community. You might be surprised how many of your employees struggle silently with substance abuse, mental illness or any number of “invisible” challenges to their wellness. The right population health management solutions and culture can provide tools that empower employees to take action and overcome their struggles, so they can be more engaged and productive for the company, themselves and their families.
